BlackBerry Bridge received a small update and is now at version 2.0.0.26. No change log is available, so it is probably some minor bug fixes. Randy pointed out that it looks like this update will be only available for those running 7.1 OS on their device. If you get the update and not running 7.1 please let us know so we can update this post.
